Cannabis farm uncovered in quiet residential street in Wembley

Tenants used rooms to grow the class B drug

THE hunt is on to find the cheeky tenants who converted their rented home in a residential street into a cannabis farm.

Yesterday (Tuesday), police discovered the flat in Oakington Manor Drive, Wembley, was filled with plants of the class B drugs after they were alerted to the property by its suspicious owner.

No one was in the property at the time.

Sergeant Liam Tierney from Tokyngton Safer Neighbourhoods Team said: “Brent Police are committed to tackling drug abuse and growing and cultivation of cannabis will not be tolerated.

“I urge that anyone who has experience criminal activities in their area should contact their local police on 0300 123 1212 or their Safer Neighbourhoods Team or if they wish to remain anonymous phone crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
